Quickie giveaway: Saffron Dreams by Shaila Abdullah
In rememberance of September 11th, I'm offering one copy of my somewhat gently read ARC of Saffron Dreams and matching book mark by Shaila Abdullah. I just finished it yesterday and it is a very good read.
From the back cover: "From the darkest hour of American history emerges a mesmerizing tale of tender love, a life interrupted, and faith recovered. Arissa Illahi, a Muslim artis and writer, discovers in a single moment no matter how carefully you map your life, it is life itself tht chooses your destiny. After her husband's death in the collapse of the World Trade Center, the discovery of his manuscript marks Arissa's reconnection to life. Her unborn son and the unfinished novel fuse in her mind into one life-defining project that becomes at one the struggle for her emotional survival and the redemption of her race.
Saffron Dreams is a novel about our ever evolving identities and the events and places that shape them. It reminds us that in the midst of tragedy, our dreams can become a lasting legacy."
Open to US only. Deadline to enter is Sept 14 at 5 PM.
Just leave a comment, including your e mail address, that briefly describes what you were doing when you heard the news about the World Trade Center attack.
